CENTREVILLE, Va., Feb. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Carfax is one of the 'Best Places to Work in Virginia' for 2018, earning a spot on the annual list released by Virginia Business. Based on employee feedback, Carfax ranks 10th among the state's large employers. Carfax has made the magazine's list of Best Places to Work in Virginia every year since the inaugural list in 2011.
"We believe there's three components to being a great place to work: a clear vision, an unparalleled work environment, and an incredible team of people most of all," said Adrienne Webster, VP of human resources at Carfax. "Just as we innovate ways to help people with used cars, we constantly seek to innovate our culture as well. At any given time there's as many as 30 dogs in our office, which started several years ago with our president's dog, Bailey. Our employees take time out to recharge at our self-service food market, video gaming stations, game tables or private rest areas. And when it comes to work-life balance, we now cover 100% of parental leave. We have a happy and healthy team that is dedicated to helping millions of people, and we couldn't be more proud that they've earned this recognition by Virginia Business for eight straight years."
Carfax has been a staple of the Virginia business community for over 20 years. Employees most often say the people-first focus, strong work-life balance, and great benefits are what they like best about the work environment at Carfax. Outside the office, Team Carfax dedicates time to support local charities by participating in the Dulles Plane Pull, Bike to the Beach ride, Step Sisters of Northern Virginia Ribbon Run and many others.
More than 200 new people joined Team Carfax in 2017 and the company continues to expand its workforce. Find your career at Carfax by visiting www.carfax.com/careers.
